Quinn plays nice with Walker at meeting

MILWAUKEE – Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn said he wants to work with his neighboring states and won’t “engage in kicking the shins of other governors.”

The Democratic Quinn’s comments came Saturday during a break at the National Governors Association meeting. Quinn was asked how he feels about Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker trying to lure Illinois businesses to Wisconsin.

Walker also repeatedly denigrates Illinois for raising taxes and having an unfunded pension system.

Quinn said he sees Illinois and Wisconsin as being part of a regional economy and it doesn’t do any good to have governors trying to recruit businesses from one state to the other.

Walker is avoiding conflict at the meeting in Milwaukee, saying he is there to work with other governors and not compete.
